Abc Cancels Gcb

05.15.12 | Sarah Harnisch

ABC yanked its freshman series "GCB" because it failed to attract enough viewership. The series was based on Kim Gatlin's novel and centers on a newly widowed woman who moves back with her family to the upscale Dallas, Texas, neighborhood where she grew up. The series was only able to attract an average of 5.9 million viewers and 1.9 ratings in the adults 18-to-49 demographic.The American Family Association had filed a petition against the show, saying, with a title that has a swear word in it, "you can imagine what kind of show it will be. Even if they change the title, the content will still mock people of faith." One Million Moms also called for a boycott of "GCB" as "blasphemy at its worst!"
